Question about Saturn Ion

1 Answer

When I lock my 2004 Saturn ION with the remote, the Passlock light comes on for about 10 seconds then starts blinking. When I do it manually from the door and then shut the door, it does not do that. I had the light come on for service today and that ran a code. That was because the gas cap was not sealing. Do not know that there is a connection. It has never done this before today and I have had it since it was new. Many thanks.

Passlock is the anti theft that is built into your car from GM. If the car is not stalling while driving or having starting issues, it is probably not a problem. It might just be an informative light. If it ends up making your car die or not start, it is a passlock failure which can be expensive.

Dissable passlock please saturn ion 2006


Passlock cannot be disabled. This is your life now, you must obey the computer.

But srsly, how do you know that is the problem? Have you scanned for DTC's?

A common problem on the ION is a faulty ignition switch.

My 2004 saturn ion will not start sometimes


Does the security light stay on ?
Your key may be worn down to the point where the ignition tumblers no longer hit the proper points.

2004 saturn ion 4 door, the car runs fine but occasionaly it will not start. What could be causing this?


If the PassLock light is blinking when you experience this issue then your problem may be the ignition switch. This is a know problem with these vehicles. The repair is actually simple.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Remove the switch. Open the switch unit up. (it has clips holding it together.) Clean the grease from the components and replace with a low temp dielectric grease. Put the unit back together and reinstall.

I had my ignition cylinder & housing replaced now my car won't start. How do I reset the passlock system so my car will start


Hello, Try this: Get in car, turn the key to start, when it don't start let key come back to run (do not turn off) The security light should be blinking, let car set for about ten minutes or until security light stays on steady at that time turn key off for 10 seconds then turn back on (do not go to start) security light will be blinking again wait 10 minutes and security light should go out. Turn key off, wait 10 seconds . Turn key on (do not go to start) security light will be blinking again, wait 10 minuets and security light will go out. AT THIS TIME TURN KEY OFF FOR 10 SECONDS THEN START THE CAR.

2006 Saturn Ion won't turn off. Key will come in and out and will turn the car on, but since its a manual transmission we have to put the car in gear and kill to get it to turn off. What do I need to...


the ignition swotch on the end of the lock cylinder inside the bottom of the steering column there is a connector that goes to it,,replacde that switch and relearn the switch,,,,after you replace the switchtry to start the car then let the key go back to the run position and let it sit for 10 minutes do this 3 times with 30 seconds between key starts and on the last one wait 2 minutes when done and they try to start it,,,,so its 3 10 minutes learns with 30 seconds inbetween,,

Car wont start.


Sorry the saturn's do not have a inertia switch. But more information would help. Like does the security light activate on the dash, you may have a bad Passlock, Place the ignition key to the on possition for 10 min and then try starting it. 
Good luck and let me know how things are going. There should be instructions in your manual on how to get the car started if the Passlock is giving you problem.

2003 Saturn Ion will not start. Security lock is on.


The fix for this problem is well known, so is the cause. GM needs to step up in my opinion. You can fix it yourself if you're willing

It is a common problem on Saturn Ion... You have to replace the pass lock switch. The cost of the part is around $65.00 cdn. It is located behind the key switch.
